The Box is beautiful, bound in leather with raised designs of jungle scenes, elephants’ eyes bejewelled with precious stones, hand-crafted in a far away African village.

Brought to England it becomes a legacy passed through three generations. To open The Box is to unleash an ‘un-put-down-able‘ bumpy ride of sex, betrayal, zealotry, larceny, and fanaticism. Were Thomas Brem-Wilson and his family blighted, never able to regain the status and glory of their ancestors? Is The Box cursed?

A revealing portrait of an African businessman arriving in England, thrown into Victorian high-society. Controversy surrounds this black man’s marriage to white Jewish music-hall starlet Ettie Cinders, but behind his ‘dandy’ persona lies religious and erotic obsessions.
